Abstract

The paper discusses the influence of the Habsburg topographic surveys and cartography on the toponymic landscape of the former crown land of Galicia. Publicly available maps have had a great impact on the geographical names used both by locals and non-locals. The Habsburg toponymic policy was characterized by non-Germanisation of already existing Galician toponyms. The Habsburg toponymic heritage is therefore of double nature: 1) forms of toponyms popularized by Austro-Hungarian maps (especially by Spezialkarte) influenced a wide toponymic usus as well as the toponymy of the later maps (especially interwar-Polish military maps) – these popularized forms may have differed from the names used by the local communities, which could have been caused by a surveyor’s mistake; 2) the topographic and cartographic materials produced by the Austro-Hungarian institutions are a valuable source for toponomastic research. In the paper, the Austro-Hungarian and interwar-Polish topographic manuals are analysed. These documents defined the way a surveyor had to collect and process geographical names. The examples and possible causes of some Polonized forms occurring in Spezialkarte are discussed. Next, the influence of the Austrian maps on the toponymy of Polish maps is explained. Finally, hilarious examples of cartographic name-copying are given.

Caracalla „... in Dacia resedit"? - zu SHA, Ant. Caracalla V.4

In the year 213 A.D., after defeating the Germans (Alamanns), Caracalla headed for the East by the end of September-beginning of October. According to recent epigraphical evidence, by December of the same year the Emperor was already staying in Nicomedia (17. Dec. 213). The geographical name Raetia mentioned in the itinerary of the Historia Augusta (v. Ant. Caracalla V. 4), deranging the correct order of events could be Ratiaria in the original text. After analysing again the data supplied by the auctors it seems possible that the emperor did not visit Dacia of Traianus during the short time available but only managed issues regarding the province from Ratiaria located in his time at Moesia Superior, but during the period of the formation of the Historia Augusta was in fact inside the territory of Dacia of Aurelianus.
